“Sudanese Leader Burhan Abruptly Dismisses Deputy, a Paramilitary Figure – Leaving Many Shocked and Confused!”

On the fateful day of Friday May 19, 2023 – a day that will be forever etched in the annals of Sudan’s history – the army chief of this beleaguered nation, Lt Gen Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, took a drastic and shocking step by relieving his deputy and Rapid Support Forces (RSF) commander, Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo (aka Hemedti), of his duties.

Indeed, both Gen Burhan and Hemedti have been serving as chairman and deputy of the ruling Sovereign Council respectively, since the October 2021 military coup, but it seems that all good things must come to an end. In a breathtaking decree – one that would leave many reeling with perplexity and confusion – Gen Burhan appointed former rebel leader Malik Agar as his deputy, also a Sovereign Council member.

As the import of this stunning turn of events began to sink in, Gen Burhan directed the secretariat of the Sovereign Council and relevant state authorities to immediately effect the decree. It’s worth noting that the army chief had previously dissolved the RSF and designated its fighters as rebels after a power struggle erupted between the rival forces.

All of this has plunged the country deep into deadly fighting and turmoil, leaving many to wonder what the future holds for the nation, its leaders, and indeed, its citizens.
